SHUFELT/ZUFELT/ZUFELD BIBLE
Posted by: Gayle shufelt Zent Date: February 06, 2001 at 14:27:15

In the "Our Folks" book there is mention of a family Bible (p.147) that was passed down to George Adam Zufelt. It is dated about 1630. It was known to be in the United States at the time the "Our Folks" book was written. The owner's name was not mentioned but at the time did not want to share the information. There is also another reference to a family Bible given to George Adam B.Oct.14, 1767 & Sophia his wife. It is in German & appears to be the same Bible mentioned previously. At the time a Mrs. Elmwood Shufelt of Montreal had the bible..This was in about 1939 or so. I wonder if anyone has any information about the whereabouts of this information or has seen anything else about it. I beleive the Mrs. Elwood Shufelt may be Glady's Brimmer, daughter of John J. Brimmer & Levina Shufelt. They had a son John Wesley b. July 8, 1912 m. Beryl Leaper. The family goes back to Georg Adam & Elizabeth Pickle (Pectel). Any clues out there ??
